Build identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b10pre) Gecko/20110125 Firefox/4.0b10pre

When the last tab in a group is pinned as an AppTab, Firefox does not switch automatically to another group until the user opens a new tab (or by Ctrl+T, ot by Open New Tab).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to reproduce:
1.Open 2 groups: A with two tabs and B with one tab.
2.Go to the B group and pin the tab as an AppTab
3.Open a new tab

Actual results:
 - the tabs from group A are displayed only after the user opens a new tab

Expected results:
 - by pinning the only tab from group B, Firefox should immediately display the tabs from group A (having no tabs left, group B is closed in TabCandy)
This may be fixed by the bug 612470; if not, that bug is still a pre-requisite for this bug.

The behavior should be that turning the last tab into an app tab doesn't get rid of the group until you return to Panorama or switch to another group manually. If you create new normal tabs before then, the group is retained.
Depends on: 612470

I've tested that.  It works as Ian described.

Mark this as wontfix.
